In brief: Maybe
But probably not.
The question is how long they have been there, what other symptoms do you have or have had, how large are they, are they soft or hard, and other numerous questions to be sure. Lymph nodes fight inflammation for a living, and when they do they may become larger and tender. If you are worried, see your family doctor.
